Kevin Durant asks fans to watch Apple TV's 'Swagger', gets roasted: 'Win a ring first'
While 'Swagger' had its fair share of praise, there was one segment of fans that trolled Durant
It was a big Friday for sports fans across the country with Colin Kaepernick's 'Colin in Black & White' and the Kevin Durant executive-produced Apple TV+ series 'Swagger' releasing at the same time. The latter is a basketball sports drama that was inspired by the NBA superstar's early experiences.
The series follows Jace Carson (Isiah Hill), a phenom in Washington DMV. He's part Giannis Antetokounmpo with that work-in-progress musculature, he's part James Harden with that aggressive offense, he's got shades of LeBron James in him with that fade away. In short, he's slated to be the next big thing in the NBA. 'Swagger faces stiff competition from Ava DuVernay's 'Colin in Black & White', the Netflix limited series focusing on the high school years of activist and former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
While 'Swagger' had its fair share of praises, there was one segment of fans that trolled Durant when he asked the audiences to tune in to Apple TV to watch the series. Fans took to Twitter to Durant's tweet that read, "#Swagger is finally here...Stream the first 3 episodes now on @appletv"
The replies were an absolute shocker. "How about you win a real ring first" read one of the tweets. "Tell Harden to be more aggressive today," the trolls continued. "SWAGGER IS YOU WINNING ANOTHER RING BRUH!" one of the comments read. "Nobody in New York cares about the nets," one of the fans wrote. "You're not making the finals," a fan teased.
"“THE LAST HAIR” “the failed legacy of Kevin durbald” It’s a 10 part documentary, don’t miss it!! It features: •Sold 3-1 lead against warriors •Lost to Duncan's spurs in 14. •How I became a snake feat.Klay Thompson •Outplayed by Lebron And Wade in the finals." one of the fans remarked. "Curry owns you" was one of the comparative statements.
